  • CNN panel: Hillary’s not offering a reason to vote FOR her, just a rehash of 2012 attack campaign

    ...Which means we are officially witnessing the saddest state of affairs in American political history There’s no reason to vote for Hillary Clinton. She’s offered no concrete plan to move the nation forward beyond the extraordinarily feeble idea that she’ll continue to do the same things that already aren’t working. Back in ‘08, Dems were shrieking about how McCain would represent a third term” of sorts, but now that Hillary’s on the stump, that’s exactly what they’re offering. Never mind that only 29% of the American people think the country is headed in the right direction. If she’s elected, you’ll...

    A Donald Trump campaign spokeswoman sparred with a CNN anchor Monday over the process for vetting Syrian refugees, and when the journalist cited a fact-checking website’s assessment of the process the spokeswoman retorted, “We’re not going to base national security off PolitiFact, or even the United Nations.” CNN’s Brianna Keilar questioned Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson about how the presumptive Republican candidate would like to change the existing process used to vet refugees ahead of resettlement in the U.S. In doing so, Keilar paraphrased an excerpt from a recent PolitiFact article, which examined Trump’s claim that there was “no system to...

    From Mediaite: CNN’s Fareed Zakaria spoke with Brian Stelter on Reliable Sources today about whether the media being too “elite” was a problem in how it missed the Brexit outcome so badly. Zakaria acknowledged that journalists tend to be “better-educated,’ “comfortable with diversity,” more liberal, and “probably less sensitive to the concerns” of average Britons who supported the Brexit. However, he said, the pro-Brexit campaign was “entirely using emotion, conjuring horror stories” about immigrants and the like, aided on by the British tabloids––which Zakaria referred to as “basically their Fox News.” Zakaria argued that “the media does have a bias...

    Battleground states are called battlegrounds for a reason: They're often close, and 2016 looks like no exception. Hillary Clinton holds narrow leads over Donald Trump across a number of key states of Florida (up three points, 44 to 41 percent); Colorado (Clinton 40 percent, Trump 39 percent); Wisconsin (Clinton up 41 percent to 36 percent) and North Carolina, which has flipped back and forth between the parties in the last two elections, where it's Clinton 44 percent and Trump 42 percent. In the wake of the Brexit referendum in the United Kingdom this week, many wondered if the same sentiments...

    Liberal CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour suffered an epic meltdown on Thursday night as it became clear that Britain was asserting its national sovereignty and voting to leave the European Union. The sneering Amanpour repeatedly derided it as an example of “xenophobia” and “white identity” politics. Early in the evening, with the result still in doubt, Amanpour told Anderson Cooper: “A lot of the Leave movements are led by the hard-right, very, very xenophobic, anti-immigrant, very populist, nationalist, white identity politics.” Later, as reality set in, the journalist referenced the current issue of The Economist and raged, “This marks a victory...

    The Huffington Post has hired former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields, the site announced on Sunday. Fields will be on the political team covering presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump, an interesting position for Fields considering her history with the campaign. In March, Fields, who was then working for Breitbart, (FALSELY) accused Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski of forcefully grabbing her out of the way after she tried to ask Trump a question during an event in Florida. When the campaign initially denied the event took place and called Fields "delusional", Fields filed a police report which led to battery charges against...

It's a salaried position and will make Lewandowski exclusive to CNN, effective immediately. Trump fired Lewandowski on Monday, ending the tenure of the fiery operative who faced a steady string of controversies while guiding Trump's skeleton campaign operation to a shocking victory in the 2016 Republican presidential primary. That same afternoon, his first in-studio interview was with CNN's Dana Bash (an NBC News reporter caught up with him outside of Lewandowski's apartment as he headed down to the...

While Priebus has made clear in these conversations that he is not spearheading the latest push for a coup, his involvement sends a signal that the RNC is taking this effort...

As with most of the coverage of the story we’ve seen over the past week, there was a rush to find out if the attacker was some sort of racist or homophobe and if that’s what led to all the carnage we saw. One of Lynch’s first stops was with Dana Bash, who was filling in for Jake Tapper on CNN’s State of the...

    The Orlando attack was horrifying. A sick individual who pledged allegiance to ISIS over the phone and on social media senselessly gunned down 49 people inside Pulse nightclub in what has become the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. He used a Sig Sauer MCX semiautomatic rifle, which is an AR-15-style rifle that has similar features, but uses a different operating system. It was not an AR-15 rifle as originally reported. Nevertheless, it didn’t stop members of the media from bashing the AR-15 because that’s the firearm liberal want to ban. More importantly, it’s the firearm that President Obama wants to ban, despite...

"Jeb is one of the people that's working — and the other one should be obvious," he said, though he didn't elaborate further. Earlier at the rally, however, Trump echoed the Republican National Committee and said the reports were a media hoax....

    A coalition of Republican delegates is mounting a last-ditch effort to block Donald Trump from obtaining the GOP nomination by pushing for a "conscience clause" that would allow delegates to vote against the presumptive nominee. Kendal Unruh, a Colorado delegate, organized a call with dozens of other delegates Thursday night to discuss ways to block Trump at the convention. The group, Unruh says, marks the coalescing of disparate "pockets of resistance" -- including backers of Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Marco Rubio and Ohio Gov. John Kasich -- which had been opposing Trump with little success.

    House Speaker Paul Ryan on Thursday said he's voting for presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump. In an op-ed for the Janesville Gazette of Janesville, Wisconsin, Ryan -- who sparked a political firestorm last month when he told CNN's Jake Tapper he was "just not ready" to back his party's nominee -- says he is now convinced Trump will advance the Republican agenda. "I feel confident he would help us turn the ideas in this agenda into laws to help improve people's lives. That's why I'll be voting for him this fall," Ryan wrote. He added, "It's no secret that he...

Let that sink in for a minute … Clinton violated the law, but committed no crime.

    Speaking to CNN's Fareed Zakaria Sunday afternoon, Wall Street Journal's Bret Stephens said that it was important for Donald Trump to lose the general election so utterly that the Republican party and its voters "learn their lesson" and never nominate someone like him ever again. Stephens has been one of Trump's most outspoken conservative critics, writing in March, for instance, that Trump is essentially an amplified version of Barack Obama. Both men were "epic narcissists who see themselves as singularly suited to redeem an America that is not only imperfect but fundamentally broken," he wrote. "The candidacy of Donald Trump...

    Wednesday's Anderson Cooper 360 saw one of the rare instances in which the dominant media have aired audio of Hillary Clinton laughing about successfully helping a child rapist evade justice when she was a young defense attorney in the 1970s. But, even after a full CNN report recalling the "aggressive" lengths Clinton undertook for her client, and her later being caught on audio tape laughing about her success while acknowledging she knew he was guilty, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin came to her defense. After recalling that impugning the integrity of a rape victim was common practice in the legal...
